Duane Allman Gibson 1957 Les Paul Goldtop Mini Guitar Replica Collectible
AXE HEAVEN® is proud to present an incredible officially licensed miniature guitar collection with Gibson and the Duane Allman Estate. These model tributes represent the signature electric guitars Duane Allman played before millions of fans during his career and that influenced multiple generations of players around the world.
In 2015 Howard Duane Allman (1946 - 1971) was voted number 9 in Rolling Stone Magazine’s 100 Greatest Guitarists poll. On top of being the founder of the legendary Allman Brothers Band, Duane was a soulful, versatile guitarist who in his short career was also a session player who recorded with a slew of artists including Aretha Franklin, Boz Scaggs, Ronnie Hawkins, Herbie Mann, King Curtis, John Hammond Jr., Delaney & Bonnie, Wilson Pickett, Cowboy, Johnny Jenkins, Lulu, Clarence Carter, Arthur Conley, Otis Rush, Irma Thomas, Sam Samudio, Petula Clark. Duane was also a member of Derek & the Dominos with Eric Clapton, playing on the legendary 1970 ‘Layla & Other Assorted Love Songs’ album. He took the art of slide guitar to a whole new level, with a distinct tone like no other.
Duane purchased the original 1957 Gibson Goldtop Les Paul with no pick guard & two PAF humbucker pickups in 1969. It was used live & on the ABB 1969 debut & 1970 Idlewild South albums. As a session musician Duane reportedly played this guitar on 1969 – 1970 seminal recordings with Boz Scaggs, Aretha Franklin, Wilson Pickett, Ronnie Hawkins, Johnny Jenkins, Lulu, John Hammond, Delaney & Bonnie & the Derek & the Dominos historic Layla album.
Over the years the original guitar changed hands & went through several refurbishments & a complete restoration by Gibson. It has often been on display at the Allman Brothers Band Big House Museum in Macon, Georgia. It has been played live in later years by Derek Trucks, Warren Hayes & others as well.
